Six startups from Singapore and South Korea have successfully completed the Cisco-TAG.PASS Smart Innovation Programme.

The six startups are Archisen (Singapore), gridComm (Singapore), Third Wave Power (Singapore), Namoo (Korea), Nexpa (Korea) and Pulzze Systems (Korea/USA).

The programme aims to help startups showcase their products and services, as well as gain opportunities in the international market. It was undertaken by tech company Cisco and Singapore's Infocomm Investments Pte Ltd (IIPL).

The startups presented their solutions to 100 potential investors, incubators, commercial partners, government officials and members of the public during the Demo Day, which was held in Singapore. This Demo Day is the culmination of the 20-week intensive programme that saw the teams co-develop solutions that are integrated with Cisco technologies.

Under the programme, the startups collaborated with each other to create a range of scalable Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, such as applications for urban farming, smart parking services and smart street lights.

For now, the approved prototypes are undergoing a pilot phase at Cisco's Innovate@Park lab in South Korea to validate their performance in real-life environments.

"By tapping on Cisco's solutions portfolio and test-bedding capabilities, these startups are realising our Smart Nation goal. We are also proud of the three teams from Singapore which were selected to be in this programme, and during which formed joint collaborative projects with other shortlisted teams to realise their product's potentials and extend solution capabilities to customers," said Alex Lin, Head of IIPL.
